Answer

Hair generally is lost diffusely over the crown; this produces a gradual thinning of the hair rather than an area of marked baldness; the part is widest anteriorly

The frontal hairline is often preserved in women

Bitemporal recession does occur in women but usually to a lesser degree than in men

See Clinical Presentation for more detail.
